TUCKER AND LITTLE STAR AS IRELAND U15 GIRLS BEAT SHROPSHIRE

Ireland Under 15 girls earned their second victory at the Malvern Festival as they overcame a poor start to beat Shropshire by 61 runs.

Batting first the Irish teenagers were in disarray as Megan Trickett (4-17) and Milly Batkin (3-10) reduced them to 15 for 5.

The innings was rescued by a sixth wicket stand of 74 between the Pembroke pair of Cliona Tucker and Louise Little.

Tucker top scored with 57, while Little hit 37 – both scoring four boundaries as the Irish posted 123 for 9 in their 35 overs.

The Shropshire reply never got going as they were dismissed for just 62 with seven Irish bowlers among the wickets.

Aoife Brennan (2-11) and Isobel McCormack (2-17) picked up a brace apiece, while the other successful bowlers were Ali Kennan, Orla Prendergast, Eimear Mullen, Amy Hunter and Maria Kerrison.
